Buddy System

Wednesday, November 8, 2017
A new addition to the playground at Tzouanakis Intermediate School in Greencastle is the Buddy Bench, conceived and created by fourth-grader Lillian Welch (center), who shows off the finished product to buddies Zoe Cope (foreground) and Clare Langdoc during a recent class break. While running for student council, Welch had the idea that if a student had no one to play with at recess, he or she could wait at the Buddy Bench for another student to make friends with and enjoy the day.
